Desertfest 2018 preview

This year marks the fifth edition of the Desertfest festival in Antwerp. Even though it has not been around for that long, it is already regarded as the Belgian heaven for every stoner, doom metal and sludge fan in Belgium. It is one of the three big Desertfest festivals in Europe next to the London and Berlin edition. This year 45 of the biggest acts in this genre will perform in the Trix on the 12th, 13th and 14th of October.

You can see the line-up beneath this text. For those who never visited the festival before, don’t doubt to go to this amazing event since it is one of the finest indoor festivals in Belgium and the ticket sales go very fast. It would not be the first year that the festival completely sells out.

This is no surprise when you count the following names on the bill: AmenRa, Acid King, Crowbar, Wyatt E., Dopethrone, My Sleeping Karma, Lucifer, Enslaved, Lethvm and many more. Also day tickets are available online. We from GRIMM will be present and offer a nice recap of this happening, we hope to see you there.

For those of you who need more motivation: you can get separate day tickets at €53 for Friday, €58 for Saturday & Sunday. Combi tickets are of course also still there at €105, for however long they last…

Daily line-ups have been added to the Line-up page. Please note that the time schedule will only be published shortly before the festival, as per usual. But for those of you who need some sense of timing: doors will be at 5h30pm on Friday, 2h30pm on Saturday & Sunday. For even more information about the line-up, practical things, day schedules and ticket sale go to the website of Trix or Desertfest.
